Oh, that sounds lovely. I would have enjoyed that when I was in high school.
To me, it seems that there has been a trend where instead of people taking responsibility and acting upon themselves, people would rather have some
authority just ban something. I feel that an instructor should be able to handle their class enough to keep some sort of order.
Though I've only been out of high school for almost five years, reading through some of the threads here just blow my mind. It seems as though
things have changed so much already. Although, I did go to a school out in the boonies, so I am sure that also impacted my experience in high school.
In my college capstone class, I have encountered students texting, calling, et cetera right in the front row of the lecture. I could not even
imagine doing that, much less in a smaller classroom setting like in a high school.
